Imagine yourself…

Seeing the world from 220 miles above

After earning a chemistry degree from Loyola in 1982, Col. T.J. Creamer, ’82, spent seven years as an Army helicopter pilot. He completed a master’s degree in physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and went on to teach physics at the United States Military Academy at West Point. Assigned to NASA as a vehicle integration test engineer in 1995, he was accepted into the astronaut program in 1998. In December 2009 he traveled to the International Space Station for a six-month mission.

Making your mark in venture capital

As a high school student, T.J. Kuegler, ’94, earned extra cash by mowing lawns. When he started college, he sold his enterprise—for a quarter of a million dollars. At Loyola he majored in economics and co-founded an Internet company that grew to become one of the world’s largest online ad networks. Now co-founder and managing director of Wasabi Ventures, a business incubator, venture capital, and consulting firm, Kuegler partners with Loyola to offer students opportunities to launch their own businesses.

Connecting with political powerhouses

As a student, Maura Gillespie took a summer job in the House of Representatives cloakroom on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. There she met Rep. John Boehner, now Speaker of the House, and secured an unpaid internship in his office. That internship led to a job, though she had to start it as a senior at Loyola, balancing it with the five classes she needed to graduate in May 2011. She used her train ride to Washington to do her homework and graduated with honors. Today Gillespie is press advisor in Boehner’s office.

Starting your own record label

Anna Wilson is a critically acclaimed jazz artist who has recorded and performed with numerous Grammy award-winning artists like Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts, and Kenny Rogers. A 1993 graduate of Loyola, she has written songs for Lady Antebellum, Reba McEntire, Billy Ray Cyrus, Brooks & Dunn, and many others. Most recently she has established herself as a jazz artist, writing and recording her own music—and the songs of country artists who performed in the ’50s and ’60s.

Saving lives in the O.R.

A Rhodes Scholar, Jose Vargas has a doctoral degree from Oxford and an M.D. from Harvard. As part of his Cardiology fellowship at Johns Hopkins University Hospital, he did genetics and cardiovascular imaging research at the National Institutes of Health. Now he teaches as an assistant professor of medicine in the Division of Cardiology at Georgetown University Hospital, and he is a published researcher exploring questions related to cardiovascular imaging, genetics, and health disparities.
